A Hard Week!

I want to start by saying I love seeing all the comments everyone is leaving on my weight journey posts!  I weighed in at Weight Watcher again this week on 1/22/13.  My mom and I had a hard time getting to Weight Watchers this week because we have been getting dumped on with snow.  We did make it to Weight Watchers though.  
This was after 1 day of snow!  It's been snowing for about 3 days!

This last week has been really rough for me between being sick and having a period for the first time in almost 3 years.  (I know that's probably too much info but it's been a rough week.  I have an IUD birth control that has made me not have a period in almost 3 years tell this month.)  My whole body feels completely wacko!  I hate to have to admit this but at this week's weigh in i gained 0.8 ounces.  I'm really hoping it is just because my body is so messed up from being sick and of course my period.  Regardless of why I gained I felt like crying my eyes out.  I felt like a failure after losing 8 pounds last week.  
My habits have changed a little with being sick.  I have mostly been eating soup and drinking a lot of fluids!  I have not been able to really work out much this week.  I have still been eating in my point range every day so that's good!  I am really hoping I get feeling better really soon so I can get my motivation back!  
Anyway I'm trying to just let this week blow over.  I know I'm going to have good and bad weeks so I should just let it go and not let it get me down.  Easier said than done.  

This is the plan I set up for myself 1/8/13:
*Started Weight Watchers
*I try to do some type of workout every day (big or small)
*Drink more water
*Drink less soda
*Tell others what I'm doing

So far this plan is going pretty good.  I'm sticking to Weight Watchers and until I got sick I was doing a workout every day.  I have been drinking a ton more water than I used to!  I have not had ANY regular or diet soda since 1/15/13!  If I start getting a craving for soda I have been drinking flavored carbonated water!  This has worked really well for me!  

I am thinking of going out to eat for the first real time since starting my weight journey!  Please wish me luck! I know for me it's always a test to go out to eat when I'm trying to lose weight!  I will be back to update again soon!
